I haven't made it through the entire issue, but one article I very much enjoyed so far is Ian Buxton's profile of the book covering the Glasgow whisky scandal of 1872 being republished.

Beyond just the particulars of the case itself, I loved the way he hinted at the double-edge sword that is "heritage". On the one hand, people love the history and tradition associated with whisky and its production. On the other hand, as Buxton points out, everything has changed in the production of whisky.....it's all been modernized. And hey, thank God for that!
